Post Brawn in the USA (and now, Camaro in the UK…)



GM/Chevrolet Official Announcement:

  • Order banks open for Chevrolet Camaro
  • Priced from £34,995 on-the-road
  • Arrives in showrooms late spring
There ain’t no muscle like Detroit muscle, and British fans of the iconic cars that ruled American roads throughout the 1960s can now place orders for the modern incarnation of one of the greatest muscle cars of all time – the Chevrolet Camaro.

Priced at £34,995 for the Coupe or £39,995 for the soft-top Convertible model, the new Camaro exudes all of the attributes that made the original muscle cars famous – great performance, stunning looks and incredible value for money.

In addition to the standard models, Chevrolet is also offering, for a limited time only, the 2012 45th anniversary Camaro, finished in striking Carbon Flash Black with bespoke red and silver anniversary stripes, dark silver 20-inch alloys, a unique 45th anniversary leather interior with red, white and blue stitching and a one-off white-backed instrument panel. It’s priced at £36,495 for the Coupe or £41,495 for the Convertible.

All models come with a six-speed manual gearbox, but are available with a six-speed automatic transmission as a £1,500 option.

Power comes from a 6.2-litre V8 engine developing 432PS (405PS auto), with 0-62mph acceleration between 5.2 seconds (manual Coupe) and 5.6 seconds (auto Convertible). All Camaros have an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. A full spec table appears below.

Customers wishing to order a Camaro can now do so, with the first cars arriving in dealerships late spring. Details of Camaro dealers can be obtained by calling Chevrolet UK on 0800 923 6000, while more details on the Camaro, including full specification and options, can be found at www.chevrolet.co.uk/cars/camaro/

5.2 seconds? Kinda slow is it not? Must be bad gas.
